Were you aware that over 30% of Americans have experienced some sort of identity theft? Pretty scary. Bad people are out there and tax season is one of their biggest opportunities to get their hands on your personal data. Here are several reasons you should use a paper shredding service for your confidential tax documents:
Try to limit any or all access to your personal or confidential information by using a secure onsite shred service. Your tax documents contain oodles of personal data that need to be shredded once you have completed your tax preparation. The vast majority of the time your confidential documents contain your social security number, bank account number etc. You need to take proper measures to use a NAID certified shredding service ore NAID certified mobile shredding service if at all possible.
Are you organized? Is your desk cluttered with papers that contain your personal information that ultimately will need to be shredded by a local shredding service? Keep all your confidential material at your home or filed in a locked filing cabinet. Any visitor to your office could swipe those documents off your desk which can lead to identity theft. Keeping everything that should be confidentially shredded in one secure place can limit your exposure to identity theft. Keep your office locked to avoid pesky thieves. Keep that confidential shredding material safe. We also offer onsite mobile shredding in Waco and College Station Texas and the surrounding areas.

You will become susceptible to a data breach if you leave those documents just lying around. Using a local paper shredding service like Embassy Records Management and Storage can help. Once your tax documents are completed they should be placed into a secure scheduled locking shred container. This will prevent fraudulent activity from happening to your personal information.
